The Monarchical Republic of Sciongrad is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Iolanda Serra de Nazaré with a fair hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.247 billion Scionites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leiria. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.
The powerhouse Scionite economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 125,460 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sciongrad's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Clove.
